paul and rick perry in the mix, and interesting that both those requests come from texas since that's where the president was campaigning yesterday. mr. obama says he wants to be a pioneer of insourcing rather than the outsourcing pioneer he has lamed romney. the romney camp painted the president as non-american and called things policies foreign and john sununu said the president doesn't understand america. more with bill back int after the break and more in chat. see you there. few others are going. >>it doesn't get anymore real than this. >>occupy! >>we will have class warfare. >>i'm being violated by the health-care system. >>we're patrolling the area looking for guns, drugs, bodies. >>we go in and spend a considerable amount of time getting to know the people and the characters that are actually living these stories. >>the award winning series "vanguard" only on current tv. we know that back to school time means back to school germs. that's why lysol partners with schools all across the country providing resources designed to help teach healthy habits. so make
-fil-a controversy even holding a campaign event at a chick-fil-a yesterday. the lt. governor of texas is in a neck and neck battle with the tea party candidate, ted cruz. and we had ted cruz on the show year. today it is david's turn. first, the chick-fil-a campaign event. how did it go? >>guest: well, i thought it went awfully well. the bottom line is, i happen to believe that marriage is between one man and one woman. it's clear, eric, in the scriptures, which are most important thing to me. so it was with no hesitation when i first came in, and i'm a life-long businessman. i still run my business. when i came in on a part-time job as lt. governor, one one ofe first things i passed was defense of marriage. marriage is between one man and one woman. and the next session i came back and made an amendment to the texas constitution. i'm in, money, marble and caucus. >>eric: now, the race with ted cruz. you originally had beaten him in a race, in an election, but not by enough, wide enough margin that it did not require a run off so this is a run off. but it seems like mr. cruz is now taking the lead
now, states have a ton of leeway to decide who is and who isn't eligible for medicaid. texas, the they only cover adults at 26% of the poverty line. it's $11,170 a year. so you could be a single person making $3,000 a year and you're not poor enough to qualify for medicaid. that's part of the reason texas has the highest uninsured rate in the entire nation. in massachusetts, by contrast, they cover working adults up to 133% of the poverty level. this is due to a former governor whose name rhymed with smitt sromney. everyone making up to 133% of the poverty line, they get medicaid automatically. right now, the federal government pays about 57% of medicaid's costs. states pick up the rest. and that's a good enough deal that every single state participates. in the affordable care act for the first three acts, the feds will cover 100% of the difference between wherever the state is now and where the law wants them to go 100%. after 2020, that drops a bit, but only drops to 90%. for every dollar the state puts in, the feds will put in $9. it's an incredible deal. the less you have

from our l.a. bureau. >> reporter: it happened near brownsville, texas, and remember, the rio grande is often dry, so it really is just a concrete culvert with no praise to hide for the agents. the border patrol is acknowledging, in fact, that two agents fired into mexico, one because he was being pelted with rocks, the other because a gun was being pointed at him. now, the border patrol says it has no knowledge of anyone being hit on the mexican side, but mexican authorities say a teenager was shot and killed. remember this? this is the incident back in 2010 where a border patrol agent who was on a bicycle shot and killed a 15-year-old because the 15-year-old and other teens were throwing rocks at two border patrol officers. that clearly caused some big time tension between the u.s. and mexico, so much so that a day later -- remember this? -- the mexican federales lining up on the other side of the border, and the border patrol on our side with shields. it was almost like a showdown. the mexican government believes the border patrol is using excessive force. but to remind you, the b
of texas. the law passed last year requires texas voters to produce a government issued photo i.d. and at issue is whether the law violates the federal voting rights act. states with similar laws obviously watching the outcome of this. the obama administration has vigorously challenged these laws and joining me now, victoria, a visiting scholar at the university of texas. thank you so much for joining me. >> my pleasure. >> obviously in texas we talked a lot about african-americans but in texas we're looking at the numbers regarding especially the hispanic community that many believe could be alienated and somehow disenfranchised by these laws. >> absolutely. you know, the voter i.d. law is a perfect solution looking for a problem. the fact that there is evidence of systematic vote fraud just isn't there. however, we do have hard evidence that if voter i.d. laws such as these are put into place, you'll suppress voter turnout and you'll suppress the voter turnout with minorities, the poor, elderly and the youth. here in texas, minority voters being disproportionately latino. at t
. >> sreenivasan: arguments began today in u.s. district court in washington over whether texas can require voters to show photo identification at polling places. the obama administration blocked the law last year saying it was unfair to minority voters. texas then sued the u.s. government citing political motives. the law is one of several recent disputes over the 1965 voting rights act, which prohibits discriminatory voting practices. the supreme court upheld a similar photo i.d. law in indiana in 2009. nearly 50 years after their plane went down, the remains of six airmen who disappeared during the vietnam war were buried at arlington national cemetery today. the remains were buried in a single casket, after being discovered last year by american and laotion search teams. for decades, family members knew only that the plane sent out a "mayday" signal while flying over laos. all six servicemen were given posthumous promotions by the military. on wall street today, stocks slipped in a light day of trading. the dow jones industrial average lost 36 points to close at 12,736. the nasdaq fell re than

in february, the university of texas announced the results of a new study, new study shows no evidence of ground water contamination from hydraulic fracturing, awesome, sounds great. you learn as the world did last week that the lead scientist of the study also works for a fracking company in texas. he sits on the board of a texas fracking company and holds stock and gets a nice annual fee. meanwhile, folks who live near fracking in texas are waking up to brand new earthquakes in their neighborhoods. one county has experienced 11 small quakes since early june. they used to have no earthquakes ever in that texas county, ever. now they've got deep injection wells and they're getting enough earthquakes that the insurance companies are starting to market earthquake insurance to the homeowners there. maybe they could ask the scientist who sits on the fracking board if the fracking is causing the quakes. as we worry over the associated calamity when we dig and drill and blast and mine and fracthis stuff out of the ground so we can set it on fire for fuel, as we marvel over just how astonishi
in texas, idaho, montana and california are not in high-priority areas. some critics fear the move will seriously jeopardize efforts to fight drug cartels and illegal immigration. ted poe joins us from capitol hill. congressman, thank you for being back to the program. the obama administration says we are hitting cities in texas like lubbock and amarillo and dallas -- they are not border towns, we have to allocate unlimited limited resources, and we are going to move our resources closer to the southern border. what's wrong with that? >> we need more resources on the border. we need national guard and border patrol and enforcement, but we also need other enforcement. because when the drug cartel, the human traffickers get across the border, there ought to be -- some of them, in west texas, where they are able to come across the traffickers they get across the first line of defense. we need to balance the approach and we need to put all the resources on the border. megyn: given the position of the obama administration, we don't want your help in enforcing immigration laws, once you

nixon was president and he is getting called constantly from the country of texas. they have suddenly exiled lyndon johnson -- he is being sent home. he is going crazy, he decides not to run for reelection. there is nothing to do. and he's constantly calling the white house and saying that i want to come up and do stuff. i need a plane and i need somewhere to stay. johnson was driving the nixon white house crazy. two such distraction that nixon said to him a house or building or an office or place to stay overnight. a young military aid was a colonel in the air force at the time, he got this assignment. i guess that tells you how i found out about this story. they basically take over a rundown townhouse on lafayette square. it becomes a secret place where presidents can be or stay the night until today. it has recently been renovated. i did recently get inside. it is four stories, the nicest four seasons you have ever stayed in your life. you can check in only four people can do that. and i should just tell you that the thread count sheets is like a billion.

johnson was put on the kennedy ticket to get texas which he won by only 40,000 votes. so now romney needs florida. if he loses florida in ohio he's done. >> i agree with that. all that makes sense on paper but it has been a very long time since we can point to an election in which the vice presidential mnominee has brought -- >> you don't think rubio could deliver florida. >> i think romney can win florida but not because of his vice presidential selection. >> we will cahear from karl rov on what states he thinks are critical to this election. >> time for you to brew on this. a lot of us have long daily commutes in order to get to work. those is spend an hour or more sacrifice this, sacrifice time with family but they refuse to sacrifice tv time. >> brown university even those with the longest commute of three hours ti three hours still managed to fit in the hour and a half of tv but only 14 minutes of exercise. so that leads us to your brew on this question of the day. if you could only choose watching tv or having family time or exercising, which one would you choose? send your comments
vote. they have a very strong case. in other states, their state voter i.d. laws such as texas and south carolina, those laws are being challenged by the justice department under the voting rights act. the voting right acts says you cannot pass laws that make it hard for minorities to vote. if you pass these laws, they have to get them approved in advance by the experts at the civil rights division. they said wait a minute there, is clear evidence that hundreds of thousands of latino and black voters, much more than the white community, would be affected. >> eliot: that's because they're covered by the voter rights act from prior history. >> under section 5 which applied originally to the states that were oppressing minority voting rights in the 1960s. the state of texas governor rick perry said, oh, the answer is the voting right act is inconstitutional. we don't need it any more. it's hold history. but they would have a better argument if they do in the keep passing laws that would make it heart to vote. >> eliot: rick perry was going to include the justice department--michae

recognizes the gentleman from texas, mr. poe, for five minutes. mr. poe: thank you, madam speaker. recently i heard from jacqueline, a small business owner in southeast texas, and here's what she said. business owners who want to succeed put their heart and soul into their business. they are the ones who get there at the crack of dawn and leave after everyone else has long settled in for the night. i have been a small business owner and i know a great many others like me, and nobody did anything for us. we did it ourselves and the only thing the government did for us was to tax us. apparently this president disagrees with jacqueline's statement. according to the administration, quote, if you got a business you didn't build that, somebody else made that happen. so the president is infering that government should get the credit for the success of entrepreneurs. he is wrong, madam speaker. people are the reason for americans' success, not government. americans have the vision, creativity and audacity to pursue a dream, not the government. americans risk their life savings, not knowing what profi

a sister there. and i have a brother in arlington, texas. all of my family lives in texas. including uncles and cousins and aunts. i'm the only one i think who migrated beyond the bounds of texas. most texans seem to return. but nonetheless, we have lived in washington for the last nine years. i worked for newspapers in north carolina, in virginia, last at the virginian pilot down in norfolk. came to the administration in '83. i was a political conservative, brian, who wanted an opportunity to serve his country, to have an opportunity to be in public life. i had been a journalism -- there's a debate as to one should go through the revolving door, but ronald reagan was someone i believed in. i thought well of. when i had the opportunity to serve, i took advantage of the opportunity and came to washington. >> what kind of a conservative are you, traditional or libertarian? >> i would probably be more clearly or easily called a traditional. >> what does that mean? >> well, i think basically a conservative or traditional conservative would be someone who respects the constitution,s the fact tha
